Dishonored has been a bit of a critical darling recently and Bethesda has gained from this in terms of higher than expected sales. Speaking about the title Bethesda’s Pete Hines tells Destructoid that the game is now considered a franchise.
Here’s the direct quote:
“We did terrific numbers again this past weekend, both in stores and on Steam, where Dishonored was listed as the #1 selling title over the holiday weekend. And Dishonored has really sold well overseas. So, we’re very pleased and appreciate all the fans that have supported Dishonored and Arkane. We clearly have a new franchise.”
Did you enjoy Dishonored? We would love to hear your impressions of the game in our comments section. Perhaps now that we know that Bethesda is committed to the franchise perhaps we’ll see a new entry come the launch of the next generation consoles, or shortly there after.
